A. Build -- Aluminium alloy + in-cell tempered glass + one-handed control

Right now most of the cellphone manufacturers are using bigger and bigger screen which makes the phone bigger and bigger. The DAP market is also the same case. But we know that there're still a lot of users like me still wants a small DAP with satisfactory sound. So today we have this small player for you: the M3K.

Speaking of the M3K, it would be one of cheapest lossless Hi-Fi player in the world right now and we will reveal the price of it later.

The design of M3K is derived from X1II but with a much smaller size and you could easily handle it with one hand. But they share the same shape as you can see.

It's using the aluminium alloy shell and full lamination tempered glass making it look and feel better.

This would be the perfect workout/fitness DAP for me.
Bring it on!

I'm just wondering, why M3K and not M3 MKII? You know like on the rest of X series devices..

cause we found it is quite complex, there will have some different name for M3 Mark II, like M3MK2, M3MKII, M3MarkII so we decided to make it more simple .

B. Hardware -- Ingenic X1000E SoC + Discrete high performing DAC AK4376A (Full formats support + Up to 384kHz/32bit)

For an entry level player, M3K still uses the Ingenic X1000E Soc and it should be the cheapest player that uses the X1000E Soc on the market now.

With the X1000E Soc, M3K has full formats support including APE,WAV,WMA, DFF, DSF and so on.

M3K uses the AK4376A DAC and could support up to 384kHz/32bit music. We have already used AK4376A in quite some models and the SQ has been proved to be very good by our user. very low noise floor and very low distortion , high power output.

C. Function -- Noise floor< 2uV + 26-hour battery life/38-day standby time + Recording + 512GB micro SD card expansion + Clock function

We know that many customers care about the noise floor and this time we manage to lower the noise floor of M3K than 2uV. M3K may has the lowest noise floor in the world depended on our test.


Battery life is very important for any electronic product, but this wouldnt be a concern on M3k. the M3K could hold up to 26 hours playback and 38 days standby time.

One of the important features of M3K is that it could support recording function, which is quite useful to students and media. And this feature is very important in China cause the student are forbiddened to carry any mobile phone in School.

We use microporous Mic hole technology making it looks more integrated.

M3K has one micro SD card slot and could support up to 512GB micro SD card expansion.

According to the feedback of our customers, they need the clock function on a player. And yeah, we have it on the M3K and you wouldn't need to look at your smart phone for time now.

@FiiO these specifications and features are very impressive, so without wishing to sound impertinent, would you kindly inform us (potential buyers) of the likely price?
